Flooding in North County Drowns Cole Field
After what feels like days of torrential rains, it seems as though the sun is finally starting to shine in The Berkshires again. However, the rain, courtesy of Hurrican Elsa, has left its mark across the east coast.
Flooding has occurred throughout the state of Massachusetts and the rest of the Northeast leaving highways in Worcester flooded and rendering New York City subways unusable due to waist-deep waters filling the tunnels.
When you compare the storm's impact on Berkshire County to those places, we realize how thankful we should be, but the effects of days and days of heavy rain have still been felt.
A total of about two inches of rainfall was recorded at the Pittsfield Airport yesterday and today, according to the National Weather Service. In North Adams, markers at the Harriman & West Airport reported just under three inches over the past few days.

Here's some photographic evidence of the impact in North County. These pictures were taken at the Williams College athletics facility at Cole Field. The playing fields which host lacrosse, soccer, field hockey, baseball, softball, and more are located adjacent to the banks of the Hoosac River.
